A Licence to Kill!

Photographers are violent people. First they frame you, then they shoot you, then they hang you on the wall!” – Anonymous

The Weekend photo challenge on Weekly Prompts the site GC and I share is EDIT.

We asked our readers if they stage manage their photos, do they take the background into consideration before taking pictures and do they edit before uploading.

Watching Me Watching You!

“Observation is the most enduring of the pleasures of life!” – George Meredith.

The midweek word prompt on Weekly Prompts the site I share with my partner GC is Observation.

Running Weekly Prompts with Gerry as well as our individual sites has provided opportunities to visit other blogs, meet new people, see how others do things, and appreciate some incredible photography, what a pleasure.

When I’m at home, much of my time is spent watching the animals in the fields outside my windows, and usually with my camera at the ready.

When Opportunity Knocks

Big Butt? Okay, my Butt may be big… but, there’s no song about your flat one 😂 ~ anon.

Too Peaceful?

“There are few things as charming and attractive as country life, especially when we are tired, stressed, and overwhelmed by the noise and pollution of the city. Country life is the only available type of paradise for people who seek peace, calm, beauty, and harmony.” ~ Unknown

Empty Fields Cropped

This is my second offering for GC and my photo challenge Peaceful over at Weekly Prompts. I’ve also linked to three other sites (detailed at the base).

Standing on the roof terrace surveying all that is below, I am once more reminded that something is not quite right, something is missing from this green and pleasant land, and if it’s possible to be too peaceful, then this is it.

At the end of March, Richard, the farmer who rents my land called in to pay his rent. “I’ll fetch you some lambs up in a couple of weeks!”  – Richard, I’m still waiting!

I love this time of year as I eagerly await the arrival of the lambs.  Often we have a few cows with their young calves, and they too bring a lot of pleasure, not least because cows are such curious creatures, frequently hanging over the garden wall, almost as though they’ve popped over for a chin-wag.

==========================

Recently, I took the bull by the horns and confronted WordPress about the failure of some our pingbacks, and not being one to let a situation slide, I badgered the company, with questions, and I cheekily offered ideas and advice.

Stepping Out

angela's fitbitOne does not simply go to bed before checking their Fitbit and quietly walking around the house until getting 10,000 steps” ~ Anon.

This weekend, the Photo Challenge on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC, is Walking. This is my own response to the challenge.

A couple of days ago I drove up to the top of Ilkley Moor to meet up with cousin Angela. Lunch with Angela is always a pleasure. Good food at the Cow and Calf hotel, log fires, and plenty of laughter as we put the world to rights is pretty much guaranteed.

I told Angela about our Weekly Prompts photo challenge Walking and mentioned my friend and her Fitbit. With a smile on her face, Angela lifted her sleeve and showed me her own fitness tracker.

After lunch, we increased the step count on her tracker when we took a short walk across the moor whilst we took photographs of the view. Perhaps I should add a Fitbit to my birthday wish list!

A Curious Mystery

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” ~ Albert Einstein

This weekend over on Weekly Prompts , the site I share with GC, the Photo Challenge is Mysterious!

This is my personal response to our challenge.

A few days ago, I returned home to find a car, one I didn’t recogniseparked near the front door. I had a quick look around outside, couldn’t see anyone so assumed it must have been left here by a colleague of my daughter or son-in-law (they live here too, next door), perhaps they had driven off together.

A few minutes later I returned to the car, took a photograph and sent it to my daughter. A return message said neither of them knew anything about the car. Read More…
